The sound quality and performance quality here are both quite good.
The many, many interruptions for stage announcements are very, very annoying.
Look on youtube for an interesting movie shot during this concert. It is loaded with images of the original full-on flower child/hippie vibe that would be mostly gone within a few years of this date, but would spawn decades worth of cliches. Check out the naked dude standing on a pole somewhere behind the stage. He is in a perfect position to be in most shots of the band, seriously standing on his pole, tripping, tripping, tripping.....
Subject: Being not a fan of the '71-'72 sound,
I still have to rate this one pretty high. Honestly, I don't mind the split sections. The jams in this show are unique, Phil's bass jam is unusually dynamic and funky (his solo jams are often more stately and spacey than this), and Keith in particular is very on. The recording is super warm-sounding, with Bobby's voice in the 3rd set having a little bit of ping-pong echo to it, like I'm standing right there between the stage and the woods. Wish I could still download it, but I'm glad I can at least stream it. My favorite '72 show that I've heard so far.
Subject: split songs
Have to agree about the song splitting. Subtracting one star for that
An excellent recording of an excellent show during an excellent era for the Dead. The jamming in Playing and Darkstar is ultra-spacy, just the ticket for late night listening.
Subject: One of My All-Time Favourites
many thanks to Jay for posting this and putting in so much hard work on this beautiful sounding masterpiece. It's easy to get caught up in the excitement of this Dead treasure chest but Jay's story made me pause and think about the amount of work that goes into making this all available.
Anyways about this show, it's always been among my favourites, Things don't really take off until the second set in which everything is played to perfection. These for me may be the definitive versions of He's Gone and Jack Straw.
The 3rd set is as good if not better. One of very favourite Dark Stars with some gorgeous jazzy passages that just melt into outer space near the end. A superb (again, maybe my favourite) Sing Me Back Home and note perfect versions of Sugar Mag & Casey Jones
If you've never heard this one, check it out!
Subject: good version
this is the one of the best sounding versions of this show on here. the dank seed one is good too. only thing i dont like is split up dark star and playing in the band

Some of us are just listening with no concern whatsoever of making a cd or downloading. It is just here in the now for your pleasure. The stage banter is part of the whole show and experience.
Thanks Jay. I had set 2 of this show for years and it was always one of my favs. Much appreciated for all the time spent on it. Peace brother.
